Power Pack Dead?
Hi,

Has anyone else had a power pack for a 5D die on them?

Even when the Drobo and computer are off, the Drobo power light should be yellow correct?

I think one of my three Drobo power packs died. I've tried swapping it between Drobos and whichever Drobo the problem power cord is connected too fails to display a yellow indicator light.

Just looking for confirmation that the yellow power light should always be on.

RE: Power Pack Dead?
hi here is a page with all the things a good (growing) psu needs to have Smile
https://myproducts.drobo.com/article/AA-01615

it does sound like the psu has unfortunately broken though

(btw i have XP home SP2, a Drobo v1 with 2x 1TB/2x 1.5TB WD greens, & a bkp Drobo v2 with the same + a DroboShare: unused)
& a DroboS v2 with 3xWD15EADS &2x1TB in DDR mode on win7, & a drobo5D (all usb)
  • btw i did a sustained (write) operation for about 6 hours, and got 13.2MB / sec ...objection? "sustained" :)
    (16.7MB/s on a v2 & 47-96MB/s drobo-s)
